Can I Install A Kuat NV2.0 On My 2020 Mercedes Sprinter 2500


I just read that Kuat NV 2.0 bike racks are not recommended for motorhomes, RVs, 5th wheels and trailers. However, the reason seems to be that these vehicles extend far beyond the rear axles and, thus, tend to sway a lot, putting torsion pressure on the rack. We have a 2020 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 van 4x4 that extends only 30 inches beyond the rear wheel well and 45 inches from the rear axle. It is not subject to much sway at all, even in windy conditions. Wondering if the same caveats would apply to our vehicle? Thanks.

We would not consider your 2020 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 to be an RV, we consider it to be a passenger van for hitch bike rack compatibility. You will not have any issues with the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Matte Black, part # BA22B, installed on your van.

I have included a product review of the Kuat NV 2.0 below.
